In a word? No. Not on Windows anyway. You need to configure the array in the raid controller, then install onto the array instead of a single disc.

You could try imaging the install to a network drive, or external disc using Ghost, then configure the RAID and image it back. If the raid driver is installed you might just be lucky, although reinstalling is probably lass hassle.

Alextoft is right. You need to configure the raid before OS installation. You are at the mercy of your raid controller. I use Promise and they let you image backup, configure the rad then image restore but it is strictly a function of your raid controller.
